Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Tad Hitchcock was raised in New England and came to Boston to pursue musical goals in 1975, making his first stop at Berklee College of Music. Since that time he has worked steadily as an accompanist, bandleader, and vocalist. In 1988-89 he toured with the Artie Shaw Orchestra under the direction of Dick Johnson. Tad has enjoyed playing clubs and concerts with reed players Billy Novick and Scott Hamilton, cornetist Ruby Braff, and trumpeter Herb Pomeroy. Previously he taught K-2 music at Tenacre Country Day School in Wellesley and was the former music director at Stoneridge Children’s Montessori School in Beverly. He has been on the faculty of WCMS for over 20 years, teaching guitar lessons, coaching ensembles, and co-teaching the WCMS Music Adventure programs during the summer. He loves talking about his favorite jazz guitarists Wes Montgomery, Oscar Moore, Jim Hall, and Charlie Christian.
